    I am the home owner and a project is being done in the bathroom. After it was installed, last week, 3 tiles have cracked, 2 very noticeably and one 4 inches on the corner, much smaller.

    I was only going to remove and replace some grout on my shower floor when I accidently dropped a small tool on the floor. The tile made a hollow sound. I removed the tile, and the thinset came up with the tile. Under the thinset was sand. I've read that deck mud is used, but should it be dry? It...

    I want to replace the shower wall and floor tiles with new tiles. The existing shower is about 20 years old but is in very good shape and has no leaks.
